The Platform

Global Scale; Limitless Capacity...

The idea for TheStartup.com PLATFORM™ began with TheStartup.com’s own requirements to build a suite of digital tools for our incubator clients. After failing to find an existing solution, we opted to create our own software that addressed the issues faced by startups and startup communities around the world— so they could launch, grow, and scale. The PLATFORM guides potential founders to the resources they need in their startup journey-- from educational content to mentors and job seekers to business support and funding organizations. The capabilities are limitless!
